, it is rewriting our surveillance laws. it is deciding what we meant as a society, as a country, when we said the government can't indiscriminately spy on us. to understand what this court is doing, though, we need to get into a corner of the law making process. a part of how we really do it. that most in the country don't think that much about. the way that most of us think about the process of lawmaking is kind of simple. congress passes a bill, and then the president signs a bill and maybe he's got a lot of pens when he does it and gives the pens away. when that is done, when that ceremony comes to a close, that bill is is now a low. in president obama's first term, before all the gridlock paralyzed washington, this kind of thing, bills becoming laws, happened a lot. congress passed health reform in 2010 after a big, long, ugly fight. and then president obama signed health reform into law at a big fancy signing ceremony. there were a ton of pens that day. then when it was over, when it was over, we had obama care. congress passed it. the president signed it. it was done. we had ourselves a
by a coup. a law on the books that says you don't give foreign aid to military koupz whecoups, and we to do it and think we'll influence these people by continuing to throw money at them. i think it's a real mistake. >> why hasn't the obama administration called it a coup? >> i think they are confused on this. so many supporters of foreign aid think that's how we buy friendship and influence people. there was a gallup poll in egypt, and 77% of egyptians don't want our money. they burn our flag, don't want our money and we say, here, you must take it. behave and act like americans, but there isn't a whole lot of real democracy going on over there. >> maybe this has something to do with it. section 508 of the foreign assistance act says "none of the funds appropriate otherwise made available to this act will be obligated any assistance to any country dually elected head of government is deposed you about a military decree or coup. maybe they don't want to be put into that box? >> you hear the president's response, oh, we have a democratically elected acting undemocratically. democracy is wher
component of the law was delayed for another year until 2015. both of these things work together. david drucker senior correspondent for the "washington examiner" joins us now. why are we learning about the change to subsidies? and we realize there will not be a lot of oversight. why is that happening? >> we'll need to find more about this, jenna, but the bottom line here the law is extremely unwieldy. it's big. it's large. as the executive branch goes about making up regulations and rules that are supposed to reflect the spirit of the legislation, they're finding that it's difficult and they're finding that it is going to be very difficult to run smoothly and i wouldn't be surprised in this particular case if they're worried the only way they can check these things out in terms of who is eligible for subsidies would be such a way to possibly deny people who are eligible or think they're eligible from actually receiving these subsidies. so think would rather encourage people to enroll and take advantage of this and make the process cumbersome and find people getting rejected that believ
with governor perry of his efforts to pass one of the toughest abortion laws in the land the ought delay of a key component of obama care, the employer mandate. we will ask our sunday panel what it means for the president's signature domestic issue, all, right now, on "fox news sunday." hello, from fox news in washington, dc. we will get to the situation in egypt in a moment. first, the latest on the crash landing in san francisco. the national transportation safety board team arrived this morning to begin their investigation into the crab of asiana flight 214. the boeing 777 slammed into the runway on saturday morning killing two people and injuring dozens more. our reporter is in san francisco international airport with the latest on the crash. >> the california ntsb was leader in hours and joined by the washington, dc team overnight with a chance to get out there with a preliminary look at the investigation now is well underway. they say the two black boxes have been involved in very good condition. they have been thrown back to washington, dc, are being analyzed to guide the investig
. legislature today resume consideration of one of the most restrictive abortion laws in the country. republicans in the lone star state seek to ban abortion at 20 weeks and put in place regulatory burdens designed to force 37 of the state's 42 abortion providers to close their doors. for the past two days, abortion rights supporters, clad in orange, have demonstrated outside the capitol where they have faced off against anti-choice advocates dressed in blue, as well as prominent voices in the pro-life movement. >> no such thing as a life that is so insignificant, so worthless, so unwanted, so unnecessary that any of us would choose and believe that we are so god like that we would singularly have the right to extinguish that which god created. >> the bill, an attempt to dramatically reduce reproductive freedoms for the 13 million women of texas. davis and her supporters displayed democracy in action was dismissed by governor perry as something else entirely. >> people have relayed to me that never in the mystery of texas have they seen that type after mob rule come in and discombobu
restraining order blocking a new law set to take effect today. that was likely to force half of the state's abortion clinics to close their doors. planned parenthood, which is suing to stop the law signed by scott walker, says now that the law is being temporarily blocked they will be able to continue to provide abortion services while the lawsuit proceeds. in addition to target regulations designed to close down clinics, the new law would also force women seeking an abortion to undergo an ultrasound. the law was passed through the legislature in the middle of june, but just signed into law by republican governor scott walker on friday, as in the day after the fourth of july in a private ceremony. the court is set to revisit this issue again next week. meanwhile, similar bill is still working its way through the legislature in texas, and boy does it have texans riled up. we'll take you to the texas capitol where the battle over abortion rights is happening live right now. ifteen percent or more on car insurance. yep, everybody knows that. well, did you know some owls aren't that wise? don
in this special session, this will, this bill will become a law. it will pass and be signed. what is the effect of that sign? it's interesting how national democrats have rallied around wendy davis and made her one of their featured causes for the last few weeks. national republicans have not been as eager to rally around rick perry. >> well, rick perry seems to have cracked the code in texas. he figured out how to stay governor for longer than anyone else. if he wants it the next time, he probably has it. on a national level, very different. he might run for president, again. it's not clear. if he does, who knows what will happen. he did not impress and come close to impressing last time. i think the really interesting thing about this filibuster and wendy davis phenomenon, they're ready for a strong voice. it helped rick perry, as well, because the filibuster has helped him grandstand about the life of the unborn and we're not done fighting and all this stuff. >> there seems to be a difference to me. where he's doing what the republican base clearly wants, but there seems to be, i'm reading t
the law -- the obama administration is committed to a long-term strategic partnership with afghanistan. the senate foreign relations committee focused on the military transition in afghanistan. the hearing lasted about two hours. >> good morning. this hearing will come to order. today's hearing on afghanistan comes not too soon. u.s. troops are still based there. the transitions in 2014 just around the corner. now is the time to take stock in our efforts and make any necessary changes. given recent speculation about our intentions, this means the united states needs to make clear once again that we are committed to a long-term partnership with afghanistan. that me be clear. i believe this is a fundamental point. as long as the afghan people and their government wants the united states as a partner. , we do not intend to leave afghanistan along. we will continue with assistance post-2014. i am aware there is a deep- seated anxiety in the region as to what the u.s. troop presence will look like. i heard it when i was in afghanistan and pakistan early this year. i know senator bob corker
here, if some people have criminal records are here, law abiding, participating four years their kids are born here, you know, it's first secure the border, pathway to citizenship done, you know, whatever little penalties you want to put in there then it's done. >> and the incentive for him to say that was obvious, surprise defeat of mitt romney. chalked up initially by republicans and just everybody else to a record high turnout of nonwhite voters. nothing for them to get shellacked but the results pointed to a different problem for the gop. latinos rapidly growing group had given president obama more than 70% of their votes. the urgency for the gop to change its tune seemed obvious. that was eight months ago. but since then a bipartisan bill has passed the senate that would basically achieve everything hannity said he wanted to achieve, $30 billion in border security, the border surge, a 1-year path to citizenship for undocumented immigrants with clean records with a series of fine and penalties. it passed the senate by a 68-342 vote late last month but now there's grave doubt anyth
is at that level. shep? >> shepard: as mentioned he has had several run-ins with the law. >> if you just look at last year alone, he was arrested last year for public intoxication. he was also arrested for a domestic dispute involving his fiance and her ex-husband. and then the case that you mentioned the drunk driving arrest where he was found naked in the road. because he threatened a police officer in that case, he was actually sentenced to 180 days in jail. that was lowered subsequently to two years probation as long as randy travis entered into alcohol rehab for 30 days. he entered the rehab program, said he quit drinking, but it's clear if that remains the case as of the time that he went into the hospital. shep? >> shepard: updates as warranted. trace gallagher, thanks. there were enormous developments today at the murder trial of george zimmerman. they involve a key 911 call from the night of the shooting. testimony from the father of trayvon martin himself, and a very big ruling from the judge about what the jury can hear. let's start with the 911 call. it's the one that a neighbor m
, but james comey also told his senate confirmation hearing he will work with congress on improving laws that govern surveillance. comey served in the justice department under president george w. bush. he said he argued strongly against extreme interrogations of terror suspects but was overruled. three young women who spent a decade imprisoned and tortured in a cleveland house have made their first public statements. the women escaped from the house and their kidnapper in early may. in an online video today, they thanked those who have given them emotional and financial support, and they asked for privacy. michelle knight, now 32, said she will not let her long ordeal define her life. >> i just want everyone to know i'm doing just fine. i may have been through hell and back but i am strong enough to walk through hell with a smile on my face and with my head held high. >> sreenivasan: the accused kidnapper, ariel castro, is facing trial on 329 counts of kidnapping, rape and aggravated murder. on wall street today, the dow jones industrial average gained 75 points to close at 15,300. the n
of law, whether treasury overreached in the third amendment. it's worth watching. fannie and freddie delivering enormous profits that are helping to reduce the deficit. >> right. >> a hard time cutting that off. >> or they don't want it cut off. perry, by the way, isn't asking for monetary damages they want the thing ruled illegal. >> right. then of course you can see them benefit because they would reinstate preferreds, go back to par, enormous windfall. richard perry will be amongst our so many different guests that we're going to have delivering alpha on the 17th of july. but certainly something to discuss with him is the future of fannie and freddie. >> great story. when we come back, oil's on the rise. off of the highs of the day. and gold, we'll talk about that. are relooking at triple digit oil for long term? will gold hit $1,000 an ounce? we'll dive into both commodities and find out what a's ahead. >>> don mat trick beginning is his newzynga. issues he has to tackle day one. take a look at early movers. priceline at the top. at farmers we make you smarter about insurance, be
of the housing bubble. >> it's not any different and the obama administration knows that this law is still vulnerable so their defense strategy is that if we just throw bags of cash at people, then we'll be able to get by more obama care voters, and there's something to that. if you make people dependent on government, people will vote for bigger government and higher taxes. that appears to be their strategy here. >> you know, ron poll lack, i know you'll come at me with these subsidy thing. i'm trying to get you to vote on the individual issues. you can't tell me if the businessman date goes down and the liar loan verification eligibility mandate goes down, you can't tell me that this doesn't undermine the entire infrastructure of the system. you can't tell me, for example that, this isn't an example of central big government run completely amuck and that's why i think this whole system dies rather than be thrown away. >> we were talking about before where does the money come from and what i heard, unfortunately it's untrue, is that this is coming by an increased deficit in the federal go
stretch according to one national security law expert at syracuse university. >> eliminating the fourth amendment, it is a bit of a stretch. >> stephanie: they're not eliminating it. it is a stretch legally. unlike the supreme court, the fisa court hears from one court in the case. findings are almost never made public. >> that's a problem. >> for the defense we don't have a defense. >> it is not a court if they only hear from one side. a court hears from both sides. >> stephanie: a single judge signs most surveillance orders which totaled nearly 1800 last year. none of the requests from the intelligence agencies were denied. according to the court the judges have had to interview when private internet and phone companies which provide much of the data have raised concerns that the government is overreaching in its demands for records and the government reports it has inadvertently collected more data than was authorized. the court has repeatedly ordered them to destroy phone data that was improperly collected. i mean -- >> who's monitoring that? >> stephanie: right. it is -- obviously
's a standard of the law. and the head of the nsa said i'll have to consult a lawyer about that. this secret court has reinterpreted the plane language of the law in ways that make the plain language unrecognizable. it has done so in a setting that there's no adversarial process or examination. >> bill: senator we're out of time but we're counting on you to keep the pressure on behalf of the american people on that issue. and many other issues. >> great to be with you. >> bill: thanks so much for coming in. influence this is the "bill press show." to the fire. are you encouraged by what you heard the president say the other night? is this personal, or is it political? a lot of my work happens by doing the things that i'm given to doing anyway, by staying in touch with everything that is going on politically and putting my own nuance on it. in reality it's not like they actually care. this is purely about political grandstanding. i've worn lots of hats, but i've always kept this going. i've dozen years.

's not that the president is parsing words. >> there are requirements under the law. right now the united states is in a very tough position. because we don't want to say that you can overthrow democracy with a military coup. our closest ally in that country is the military. it was in the last changeover in government. there's extraordinary concern about stability in the region and israel's security, and, you know, it's easy to criticize -- >> call it a coup and you're farther away. >> easy to criticize the administration but i think right now with no great choices being for stability, trying to see if democracy can emerge is the best option. >> absolutely. willie? >> nbc's foreign correspondent ayman mohyeldin is live in cairo this morning. good to see you. an ugly day there yesterday. >> it was. you know, it's kind of strange these days, waking up in cairo and saying, you know, it's off to a good start when you don't have any casualties to report. that has been the case today. the day you were talking about yesterday was one of the bloodiest egypt has seen in the past two years. as we were tal

is they copy cat each other. they are trying to stop democratic laws from being implemented or appointing executive branch appointees from being affirmed, you can bet they will return the favor next time there's a gop president. meanwhile the fight in congress is over student loan rates which doubled. yesterday house republicans tripped up the capital steps to very publicly blame senate democrats for failing to pass a bill. >> the white house and senate democrats have let these students down. frankly, i think they deserve better. the failure to lead on student loans is part of the president's larger issue and that is the failure to lead on the biggest issues facing our country. >> right now what they have done over there is worse for students than doing nothing at all. >> last night senator reid took the procedural step necessary to set up a wednesday vote on a short-term fix to lower loan rates. it would extend the current another year to july 1st leaving rates to students who need help. this is similar what they did last year at the height of the presidential campaign. this time not lik
of the fact that we passed much tougher human trafficking laws. and i think the problem is that prostitution is, in fact, integrally related with other parts of criminal activity that is fundamentally wrong, dangerous, violative, on any dimension. if people are saying, look, two people consensually having sex and there's money, when you define it that benignly, it seems somewhat like smoking dope and people say, a that, decriminalize it, but it is integrally related with other aspects of criminal behavior. >> does redemption require that you run for comptroller? you were the governor of this great state, as opposed to running for mayor or some other office? >> no -- >> given your credentials and your pedigrees, it almost feels this is a spot beneath spitzer's record? >> i love the job i'm running for. >> why? >> because you have a say in so many fundamental decisions about control of the pensions, which is important not only for suring that they are there for those who earned them, but corporate governance shares because shareholder voices are not being heard, institutional shareholders are

of fannie and fraed eddie. they claim they violated a 2008 law that put the lenders into what's known as conservatorship as housing market losses surged during the financial crisis. the government agreed to inject billions of dollars into the companies to keep them afloat. in return the treasury got a new class of preferred shares that initially paid a 10% dividend and warrants to buy about 80% of fannie and freddie's common stock. last august treasury amended those terms, instead forcing the firms to hand over nearly all of their profits as a dividend starting this year. fannie and freddie don't have to make dividend payments until -- when they're unprofitable. as a result they can't redeem any of the preferred shares the government has taken. perry which began investing in fannie and freddie in 2010 claims as the companies returned profitability last year the government moved to ensure treasury would be the sole beneficiary of the improved balance sheets. the suit also claims the dividend sweep amounts to a new stock purchase, something treasury didn't have the authority to do in 20
